Hallo! Ich bin Elena! Willkommen auf meinem Reiseblog Creativelena.com.
Ich bin die Kreativreisende, und Du offensichtlich neugierig.
*Was ist "Kreativ Reisen"? Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen liefert Dir mein Reisehandbuch "The Creative Traveler's Handbook". Am liebsten reise ich im Rhythmus der Einheimischen und bin dazu bereits ein paar Mal um die Welt. Sechssprachig. Mit viel Charme, Herz und Hirn. Dies hat mich sowohl ruhig als auch rastlos gestimmt: In der Fähigkeit, inspirierende Geschichten über außergewöhnliche Menschen und Regionen zu erzählen, liegt mein größtes Lebensglück. Viel Vergnügen & Inspiration beim Stöbern durch meine Reisegeschichten!
“Listen here. It is so quiet … absolutely no noise.” My words carry over to my friend & travel companion Björn from Iceland, whose face immediately breaks into a knowing smile. Noticing the absolute absence of noise has us world citizens & urban dwellers almost shriek with delight. Even the sea cradles the coast in a […]
Exiting the plane, I take a deep breath in this far-flung country of Iceland, sitting right below the Arctic Circle some 60° latitude north. I realize I have never been this far north in my whole life. Iceland. What a mystery this name bears, even – or especially – to a world traveller like myself. […]
“Dear Elena. I would like to nominate you and your blog for the ‘Liebster Award’ – care to answer a few questions? Kind regards, Eva.” Eva’s message reaches me on 25 September 2014 after having already been nominated by Tanja a day earlier.! I am actually on a trip exploring the legendary BURGENland in the […]
The world travel bug has bitten me. Again. From being totally relaxed to being utterly excited, the question I most answer these days is: “So how do you prepare for three months on the road?!” I then hear myself say, smiling: “But I have already been on a round the world trip you see … for […]
Dear readers. “I am so inspired”. (#Ibinsoinspiriert). Only recently, my dear friends & fellow travel bloggers here in Austria have assigned me this unique local lingo hashtag. I guess a big part of it is owed by the fact that Creativelena has forever (been) inspired by writing & sharing stories on her travel blog. And […]
Saskia’s face lights up as she starts talking about her time in New Zealand. “I was entrusted to lead an entire group of horse trekkers”, she tells me with pride in her voice, her eyes lingering on the photos of “her horses” in Hokianga, New Zealand’s North Island. Five minutes later, we are both under […]
Everyone has them. Everyone knows them. Everyone loves them. And this time, I am asking you: What is YOUR life dream? 🙂 Today, I will tell you mine. Where it came from, where it will lead me and … my thoughts and feelings connected to it. Pretty much all at once. And yet worth reading. […]
Sweet. Crunchy. Spicy. Unusual. Hot! Tender. Delicious. Soft. And oh, my God … When have you last closed your eyes, sighed for the magic of the moment, the sweet taste of something unfamiliar yet incredibly tasty lingering hot in your mouth? 🙂 I know that feeling. Ever since I started travelling at the tender age of three […]
Sometimes, when you travel, you meet the whole world in one person. All the feelings are there: Natural wonder, new discoveries, beautiful music still foreign to you at first, but quickly becoming a part of you. New emotions and thoughts add to your personality, and make you a richer person on the inside. As you […]
“Aren’t you hiding from reality?”, I have been asked repeatedly in the past concerning the sheer number of trips I take. Most of the time, this question has just annoyed me. Today however, dear readers, I would really rather hide from reality. Too much has happened in the past few days, the reality of a […]
